Ganging Up on Decorative Pendants
by Lois I. Hutchinson
Ganged pendants are one of the hottest trends in decorative lighting. And today's LED sources lend themselves to hardwired, multipoint designs: modern or contemporary; transitional or industrial. "The trend has been coming and coming," according to Randall Whitehead, principal of the education firm Your Lighting Doctor. "What we were seeing in the early 2000s was the two pendants over the kitchen island. Now we see a more irregular, artistic approach; rather than creating a line of light along a surface. You see it in great rooms, stairs and kitchen islands. It's not just light. It's illuminated art."
First Do No Harm: Lighting Industry Reacts to
AMA Report on 'Blue' LEDs
by Lois I. Hutchinson
When the American Medical Association released its report on human and environmental effects of LED streetlighting this past summer, it sparked some alarmist headlines: "Doctors issue warning about LED streetlights" and "Are streetlights damaging YOUR health?" Immediately, concerned citizens began asking questions of their utilities, municipalities and outdoor lighting manufacturers.
